Vintage Recipes from Kentucky Paper Ephemera Cissy Gregg Cookbook Louisville Courier Journal Southern Cooking 1950s Ad Scrapbooking Crafts

This is a delightful, vintage 1950s edition of Cissy Gregg's Cookbook, published by Louisville, Kentucky's The Courier-Journal. The vintage ads are as wonderful to read as the recipes. It’s fun to see how many recipes are still popular today. This paper bound compilation of Gregg's home cooking recipes contains marvelous mid century images and graphics.

Gregg was home consultant for The Courier-Journal in the mid-’40s and ’50s. In the introduction, Gregg wrote:

“Cooking the two or three daily meals for the family represents a constant drain on cook’s imagination. All of us cooks find ourselves suddenly in a rut. Our favorite food markets offer no stimulation. Cooking becomes monotonous with repetition. Even if the family is uncomplaining, we realize that a varied diet is one that gives the best nutrition.

“For 11 years, we have tried to help answer the puzzling question of ‘What shall I have to eat for dinner tonight?’ ”

Unfortunately, the cover and pages 74-76 are missing. I would recommend this as paper ephemera purposes or as an ephemeral addition to your recipe collection. I would not consider this a collectible edition.

Please see my photos and ask questions. I am happy to provide additional pics.

Thanks for looking!
